Why are we all categorised as 'newbies'?
How come you have five stars and the rest of us only have one each?

The software that drives the site supplied by a company called Joomla does the calculations. I think you need 50 postings before you move up from being a newbie

As moderator - it's my site I get lots of stars - it's just like being the dictator in a banana republic your make yourself a 5 star general

If you start your own BB you too can become a Field Marshall!!!

I have found a way to change the rules for you.

You are now officially a Hero Member (the highest ranking), those with the same number of posts as you (or more) are given the same grading

I did try to set up a special group for you so that you could have 6 stars but a bug prevented this - I have reduced my number of stars to 1

This is must be how the senior members of the Soviet regime operated!

Unfortunatley the board is a bit too well known!!!

Everyday anything up to a dozen new "users" try to join. Around 99% are spammers using false email addresses trying to advertise products which I assume most if not all memebers don't need. Some are bit of a give away, those with "porn", "drugs" etc in the address or user name; the others I have to individually check out by looking at the IP addrees they come from, those from Russia, China and other dubious places are rejected, the remainder I have to send a personal email to asking for response to see if they are real -- occasionally I get it wrong a reject a real user. If this happens to you, my apologies.

Please email [email protected] and I will sort the matter out
